Trade agreements privatising biodiversity outside the WTO: 2018 update

by GRAIN | 27 Aug 2018


GRAIN has just updated its dataset showing how so-called free trade agreements (FTAs) push for the privatisation of seeds and livestock beyond the rules agreed to at the World Trade Organisation. FTAs often do this by obliging countries to adopt or implement the UPOV convention, what some call "Monsanto laws". 

The previous version of this dataset was published by GRAIN in July 2016. This new version incorporates about 20 new cases or updates. Click here to download it:
